Murder Is No Accident
I absolutely loved the first two books in A.H. Gabhart's The Hidden Springs Mysteries series - Murder At The Courthouse and Murder Comes By Mail - so I absolutely couldn't wait for the third installment, Murder Is No Accident, to come out! The town of Hidden Springs is cozy and quaint with a small-town feel, with plenty of secrets, mystery, and intrigue. The back cover of Murder Is No Accident says:
"Young Maggie Greene may be trespassing in the old, empty Victorian mansion on a quiet street in Hidden Springs, but all she wants is some private time in the magnificent tower room to write her stories. Certain she'll be in trouble if caught, she hides when a realtor shows up. But someone else is in the house too, someone even more worried about getting caught. When Maggie finds the realtor's body at the bottom of a flight of stairs and the other person gone, Deputy Sheriff Michael Keane is called in. He assumes the realtor's death is a tragic accident--until a second person is found dead in the house. When Maggie is threatened, Michael must catch the murderer before anyone else dies.
Cozy mystery fans will love this third installment in The Hidden Springs Mysteries series from an author who knows how to make small-town America sweet, sentimental--and a little sinister."
I have to admit, I love cozy mysteries. When you combine cozy mysteries with Christian fiction, it's even better! Gabhart hits just the right notes with her Hidden Springs series. There's plenty of laughs, but serious undertones as well. There's fun and silliness, but there's also suspense and deep undertones and storylines as well. Murder Is No Accident definitely didn't disappoint! It continued all the storylines I loved from the first two books while adding a brand new mystery that kept me turning the pages late into the night. I highly recommend this book (and series!) to everyone who loves a good cozy mystery.
